Bibi isn't about to let Eve Harington share the spotlight

Bibi has gone off on Iran's new President.  Calling him a wolf in sheep's clothing, and a new face for old hate, Bib is becoming a little unhinged.
.
Seeing how well his meddling worked in getting President Romney elected, he has waded back into American Politics to warn us that Iran shouldn't be trusted.
.
When reminded that the entire reason of sanctions was to stop Iran progress towards a nuclear weapon and to start talks again - he quickly exited stage left to build more Israeli Settlements on occupied territory.
.
Have you seen "Bullets over Broadway"?  If so, you can see Bibi has morphed into the overly obsessive and controlling Dianne Wiest.  But the movie ended - and Bibi didn't plan for that.  He planned for a  character to step into John Cusacks twerpy fawning role.
.
With the George W Bush / John Cusack character retired, now Bibi / Dianne attempts to sweet talk the understudy (OBama) only she isn't a good enough actress to hide her raging hatred of the usurper.

I mix my metaphors, but you know what I mean.  And if you don't - well let me un-metaphor it.
.
Benjamin Netanyahu hates Barack Obama so much that he cannot even pretend to be civil.
.
He tried, clumsily and ineffectively, to influence the outcome of the election.*  Prime Minister Netanyahu takes the United States support for granted and is an asshole to us; waiting out Barak Obama's term with the obvious expectation that the next President will be more subservient.
.
Unfortunately for Bibi, his laser focused hatred is blinding him to the Republican tea leaves.  The whole country in general, and the Republicans in particular, are moving to a more isolationist international policy.  Being a dick to Americans publicly,  lecturing the President openly, all this may make Republicans like you because they hate Obama too - but it demonstrates that you are an asshole that hates Democrats.  That is going to be a costly in any future Republican administration determined to pull back from the world.  Or more costly in a Democratic administration that now understands, nothing will accommodate date Israel.**
.
* This is the mark of true hatred, I think.  Bibi is an expert politician, but his hatred of Obama blinded him so much that he was both obvious and clumsy in our recent election.  Snubbing Bibi now holds no downside for Obama.  Bibi has already told all the US (and all of Israel) that Obama is no friend of Israel.  Anyone who believes that crap already does, no matter what the President does.  
.
That was a strategic mistake.  At this point, opinions are set.  Obama could kiss Bibi's big fat ass or tell him to pound sand - and no opinions would change.  So why go out on a limb for some blustery liar who is going to trash you no matter what?
.
.
** Don't believe me? Take this quiz.  What would convince Israel to make peace with the Palestinians?  Seriously.  Tell me ANY solution that would convince their Parliament - and you will win the lottery.  It is like playing miniature golf without a cup for the ball to go in... you get it past the windmill, the stream and schoolhouse to find out there is no hole on the green.
